Stephenson College welcomes all members of the Durham University community to our Holocaust Memorial Day Remembrance Event on 27 January 2022 in Platform 1, Stephenson Central, DH1 3DE.
Join us to remember all victims of genocide at a simple remembrance event at 18.45. We will read a poem and hold a minute's silence. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust Ceremony will be shown in Platform 1 between 19.00 - 20.00.
At 20.00, we will Light the Darkness. We will be "lighting" electric candles to remember those who were murdered for who they were and stand against prejudice and hatred today. Stephenson College livers-in and livers-out are welcome to collect a candle lighting pack from College Reception containing an electric tea-light, a HMD booklet and the story of a person for whom you will be lighting your candle. These packs will be available to collect from Tuesday 18 January 2022.
If you would like to participate and have any access requirements, please contact Katie Stobbs, Vice-Principal on [email protected]
